Featured Animal Action

Velvel (Allen Lewis Rickman) leads his horse and cart down a deserted street as snow falls. The actor was instructed on the handling of the horse ahead of time. A snow machine provided the snow, and synthetic fabric was placed on the street under some crushed ice to provide better footing. The trainer attached the cart before filming began.
